A Theory Bearing Scrutiny--Rhode Island Historical Library--
       "John Wood was a London seaman who had many dealins with the Winthrops, both Gov. John of Massachusetts and John Jr. of Connecticut. A seaman who was sometimes a shipmate and sometimes a manager and part owner of the craft on which he sailed. A man with his eyes always open for business opportunities, whether as a carrier, as buyer and seller of goods overseas, in the buying of land, or the taking over of mortgaged property.
       John's being part owner or manager of some vessels on which he wailed was what made it possible for him to bring a sizable and grown family into the colonies. Seemingly with no record of clearance or arrival here. (See John Wood of Rhode Island by Bertha Clark at Rhode Island Historical Library.)

William Wood wrote a book about New England entitled New England Prospect. He came to America as early as 1628 or 1629, perhaps with Gov. Endicott. His book was printed in 1634 in London. Some geneologists note that William Wood is the father or brother or John Wood of Portsmouth.

The Name and Family of Wood, compiled by Media Reseach Bureau, Washington, DC:
       "Wood is an Anglo-Saxon name, local in origin, and derived from the residence of the first bearer. It is found on ancient records in various forms of Wode, Wodde, Woodde, Wodes, Woddes, Wooddes, Whod, Whode, Whods, Woode, Woodes, Woodds, Wood, Woods. The last two fors are most generally accepted today. The name is found in all parts of Great Britain, but most frequently in England and Scotland. William de Bosco, or de Wood is mentioned in Scotland in 1170. Andrew at Wode and Richard de la Wode of Oxfordshire in 1273, Elias in le Wode of Cambridge about the same time, Walter de la Wode of Herfordshire in the time of King Henry the Third, Robertus and Thomas del Wode of Yorkshire in 1379, and Admiral Sir andrew Wood of Largo, Scotland in the latter half of the fifteenth century."

A Branch of the Wood Family in England by Leland N. Wood, traces eight generation of John Wood. Leland Wood goes back to what he terms the first generation in England. In the year 1278, William Atte Woode was in Coulsdon Parish as a yeoman and landowner. There is a record that he married Juliana. In 1318, William and Juliana purchased Beckenham kent, near Coulsdon. At this time he changed the spelling of his name to William Attwood. He was knighted and became Captain of the King's Guard. He had two sons, Geoffrey and Peter, who became Sergeants at Arms to the King. William and his sons fought for King Edward II in the French War. England was victorious. Great treasures were taken from the French and many of the common soldiers were made wealthy. Hence, Peter Attwood gained much wealth to buy vast acreage in England.

Peter Attee Wode, Sr., son of William, bought the estates known as Sanderstead and Wodemershorne. In 1346, he made application for a private chapel at la Wode. In 1356, he lived at Coulsdon, according to a record in Rotalarum. At this time he was associated with William Wickham on the King's Commission. He was also engaged in building at Windsor. He married a daughter of the laurence family and they had a son also named Peter.

Peter Atte Wode, Jr., (Peter [2], William [1]), married Petronilla. He was a Member of Parliament in 1384. In 1385, he built Sanderstead Church. This information is found in the history of the church. Peter Atte Wode and Petronilla had a son whom they named John Wood.

John Wood, (Peter [3], Peter [2], William [1]), married Isabba. He was called to Parliament as "de Wodes" in 1459. Records state that he built Sanderstead Court, while holding Coulsdon Manor under a twenty-year lease (1434-1454). John Wood and Isabba had a son also named John Wood.

John Wood, (John [4], Peter [3], Peter [2], William [1]), married Denes (or Denys). He died July 31, 1525. His will on record names his wife Denes, four sons and a daughter, Agnes. Agnes married John Owenstead. John Wood was removed from Sanderstead Court. The land had been held on a lease from the church. Denes Wood made her will in 1530. She referred to her late husband, John Attwood of Sanderstead, signing as Dene Attwood, and mentions her daughter, Agnes, and four sons. She calls the first son John, and the third son, Nicholas.

Nicholas, (John [5], John [4], Peter [3], Peter [2], William [1]), was an officer of the Queen and Sergeant of the Queen's carriages. Queen Elizabeth is supposed to have spent a night at Court Farm on Sanderstead which, at that time was the home of Nicholas Wood. Nicholas Wood married Olive and they had a son named John.

John, (Nicholas [6], John [5], John [4], Peter [3], Peter [2], William [1]), was a leather salesman. He had four sons, Harmon, Stephen, Henry, and JOhn. Ther is litigation on record between the sons concerning the estate, in which Harmon succeeded in getting the larger part. John, Henry, and Stephen emigrated to America.

Although Leland Wood claims that this is the ancestry of John Wood of Portsmouth and Newport, at the present time we have no way to prove or disprove it.

There is a record of a marriage at St. Saviour's Church, Southwark, London, England on January 28, 1610/11 which, in all probability, belongs to John Wood, later of Newport and Portsmouth and Margaret Carter, the mother of all but the last two children born to him.

British Heritage, June/July 1987, devoted an article to the Southwark Cathedral. There is an engraving of High Street about 1650; an engraving of the cathedral in 1647, and a photograph as it appears today. There is also an interesting engraving of the Tabard Innas it appears in 1650, some fifteen years after John Wood and family had emigrated.

Today the cathedral is hidden from view as you enter Southwark on London's south bank. This is caused by the position of the new bridge built in 1973, which actually placed the cathedral below street level. When John and Margaret were married, however, the cathedral towered above London Bridge, the only bridge across the river until 1750.

The site of Southwark Cathedral is truly ancient. In the ninth century there was a religious college located there. It was established by none other than Saint Swithun, the Bishop of Winchester.

In 1106, a church was built on the site by two Norman knights. The church was called St. Mary Overie (Over the Water). This church burned in 1206. Rebuilding was slow until the wealthy Bishops of Winchester, Henry Beaufort and Richard Fos, financed repairs, completed the tower and added an ornate stone screen dividing the High Altear from the retro-choir.

King Henry VII took over the building in 1539. An act of Parliament made St. Mary Overie the parish church of St. Saviour's, Southwark.

As we speculate on the marriage of the couple who lived in the shadow of the great gothic cathedral, we must recall the history of the time. Southwark was in the throws of great prosperity. Products were arriving from India, the Far East, and the New World. Everthing destined for London went through Southwark across the London Bridge. Traders and travelers were crowded into the taverns for which Southwark was also famous.

No permanent settlement in the New World had been established at this time, but moderate-minded Puritans were being harassed. A band of Pilgrims had but two years before left England to settle in the Netherlands.

John Wood, whose New World associations were with people of strong-minded religious persuasions, such as William Coddington and Anne Hutchinson, must have been profoundly under the influence of the Calvinistic spirit which was blossoming about him.

There are several Wood Arms, but the one so designated as being from the family of John Wood are as follows:
       Arms: Sable, a bend of silver, on the bend three fleur-de-lys sable.
       Wreath: Silver and sable.
       Crest: A Wolf's head erase proper with a collar and ring gold, the edges of the collar gules.

These arms are found in the Prompptuarium Armorun 18b and in the Chute manuscript. The arms were granted May 6, 1578 (Edmondson). In the early heraldry the collar would mark the head as that of a dog (alaunt or wolf-hound) as opposed to that of a wolf, but at such a late date as 1578, such a distinction could have been lost.

       Description: There is a wolf's head on top of the shield. It has a collar of gold with red edges. The tongue is red. The rest of the head is gold. There is a gold ring in the collar.
       The shield is black with a band going from left to right diagonally. The band is silver. On the band, equally spaced are three fleur-de-lys which are black.
       The crest, to be warn on pocket or hat, is the same wolf's head and collar, but instead of a shield, it is surrounded by a wreath of silver and black leaves.

                            Newport-Portsmouth

The fact that John Wood is located in the Newport-Portsmouth area as early as 1640 leads us to look briefly into the background history of that place.

The mainland arms, Point Judith and Sakonnet surrounded Aquidneck of "Isle of Peace" as the Narragansett Indians called the island. The southern portion of the island fronted the open sea. One side had anchorage in Narragansett Bay. The other side was a salt water passage called Sakonnet River.

In 1639, William Coddington, Jeremy Clarke, Thomas Hazard, Henry Hull, William Dyer, and nine others were forced to leave Massachusetts Bay for religious beliefs. John Wood, Nicholas Brown, and Richard Smith may have been with this group or may have followed with a very short time.

These men went overland to Providence, intending to sail for Delaware. After meeting with Roger Williams, they changed their plans. He guided them down Narragansett Bay by canoe and acted as their interpreter in dealing with Miantonomi, the tributary chief under the great sachem, Canonicus.

On May 16, 1638, Newport was laid out on both sides of a streem which ran from a spring on the present Tanner Street, down Marlborough Street to the Bay. The houses faced the harbor. Each house lot was allotted four acres with room for pasture and orchard. The first Quaker Meeting House in America was built nearby. Newport became a refuge for those people. many new Quakers came here directly from Barbados and Jamaica.

Leading members of Acquidneck besides Coddington were William Hutchinson, William Dyer, John Coggeshall, Nicholas Easton, William Brinton, and John Clarke, who wrote the first tract by an American definding the Baptist persuasion and was the first Baptist missionary to Massachusetts Bay in 1652.

One hundred settlers came to Aquidneck during the first year. John Wood and his family were certainly among these settlers, probably among those of the Baptist persuasion for this is a family of many future Baptists.

The little harbor was too shallow for large ships so Coddington, Clarke, Easton, ans six others moved further down the island to establish a new plantation. Hutchinson whose boundary is mentioned in a a John Wood deed, chose to stay behind.

The harbor was called Newport, and at the end of 1639, ninety-three persons resided there, making their living by the sea, more trading than by fishing.

Anne and William Hutchinson and William Coddinston settled at the north easter corner of the island know as Pocasset. They changed the name to Portsmouth in 1643.

In 1644, the name Aquidneck was changed to Rhode Island. The group was wealthier and better educated that the Providence Plantation group. They allocated the land in propertion to wealth and social rank. Gentlemen were given larger grants than millers or coopers. Land was given sparingly to new comers and land ownership being a requirement for voting, only a minority of inhabitants were freemen entitled to vote. John Wood was among these special few, having purchased a homestead and being admitted as a freeman in July 1648.

John Coggeshall of Newport was elected first president of the colony. His four assistants or council consisted of Roger Williams, William Coddington (who refused to serve), Randall Holden, and John Sanford of Portsmouth. John Coggeshall's granddaughter, Rebecca, married Peleg Wood, son of John (2) and grandson of John (1) Wood.

In 1639, Thomas is on record in Quinnipiac, now New Haven, Connecticut. It is surmised that he may have been of a company of settlers from Yorkshire, England who came to America in October 1638 with the famous non-conformist minister Ezekiel Rogers. There is a record of a Rececka Manchester, married December 8, 1610/11 at St. Saviours Church, Southwick, Thomas Cooke. He removed to Protsmouth, Rhode Island before 1642 and on February 25, 1642 he was chosen to serve on the next jury. He served as town sergeant from 1674 until his death.
